About

The Chica Power Academy will promote girl empowerment by gathering middle girls on a monthly basis throughout the school year to hear inspirational guest speakers, participate in hands-on workshops, meet role models, build confidence, express themselves creatively and discuss girl power topics. We are recruiting high school girls to serve as teen leaders to mentor younger girls. The group meets monthly one Saturday each month throughout the school year. The program will encourage girls to grow strong, healthy and confident as they develop leadership skills, connect with female role models, learn ways to overcome peer pressure, boost their self-esteem, learn about the importance of education and explore career options. Teen Leaders will serve as a youth advisory board, help with recruitment and promotion, aid with workshop planning, assist our workshop presenters, serve as mentors for girls, guide small team activities and lead icebreakers and teambuilders.

To successfully complete the Teen Leader program and receive a diploma of completion, teens must attend at least 5 of the workshops and complete at least 10 hours of community service.The program runs October through April 2015 and includes 7 workshops as well as additional community service opportunities and cultural celebrations.
